Sewing Repair/Dress Elastic Gathering
Last summer my daughter purchased a dress with the elastic gathering across the chest. We brought this out of storage and to our dismay, the elastic has died!!!! Therefore, I have removed all visible signs of the manufacturer’s “quality???” work and would like to replace this elastic stitching, however, dispite the number of books I own, I cannot find any reference to sewing with elastic thread. I have search the net a little, however I haven’t found a method that works.
I was wondering if anyone has had this experience and any advise on fixing the situation. (By the time I figure this out, I could make her a new/nicer dress.)
Thanks to all!
